Welcome to photo series Eater Scenes, where Eater photographer Elizabeth Daniels visits some of the city's great restaurants to capture them at a certain, and very specific, point in the day. Today, Chez Jay.
Elizabeth Daniels 9/13
Christmas lights, wood chips, and red/white checkered tablecloths are just a few of the distinguishing embellishments that flavor iconic Santa Monica watering hole and surf/turf joint, Chez Jay. Withstanding over a half century on Ocean Avenue in Santa Monica, Chez Jay is presently on the endangered species list. But, before any changes are made to the stalwart locals hub, Eater photographer Elizabeth Daniels stopped by last week to capture the scene at 9:15 p.m. on a Friday night.
